PRAYER FOR ISRAEL

candlestickFather, we know that You are gracious and merciful and that no man, Jew or Gentile, deserves your forgiveness or blessing. We acknowledge that every good gift comes from you and that each is a gift of grace. Our brothers in Israel are under attack. They are surrounded by folks who hate them. Like Esau their cousin, the sons of Ismael are driven by jealous anger: they hate the Israelites, they have always hated the Israelites. They would celebrate Israel’s demise and destruction. Hatred has driven them mad and they are obsessed with the destruction of Israel and the total annihilation of Christianity.

Father, we love the promises in your word and today we claim those of Ezekiel 36…In Jesus name, make Israel a light to the nations; reveal Your holiness through them. Display Your awesome power through this tiny Nation that so many despise. I pray for you to begin a work among Jews everywhere. Cleanse them of their sin through the blood of Jesus Christ. Give them a new heart. Replace the old stubborn and rebellious heart with a believing heart. May they turn to Christ by the thousands, yea millions. Fill them with Your spirit and make them conscious of their sins. Give them such great conviction that they will come to despise all the detestable things they have done to Christ. Make them utterly ashamed of their past. Put within their heart and mind a desire to return to the land of Israel. God, only you know how many there are and who they are: draw them mysteriously to their homeland. Turn the land of Israel into a Garden of Eden. We know the North {Galilee} has been transformed but we pray for both North and South. Turn the barren wilderness of the South into a garden. This should get the world’s attention. Multiply the Israelites until they cannot be counted. Make them a force for Missions and Evangelism. Do it Yahweh for Your glory. I believe it will happen but not due to my believing, due to Your promise. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen!

Prayer of Confession [Sins of the Nation]

Based on Psalm 106 and Isaiah 26

We praise You LORD! We offer thanks to YOU, the Eternal One because You are good. We praise You for Your unconditional and infinite love; a love founded on Your character and capable of overcoming our sin and shame. Father, no one can describe how great You are–no one can praise You enough. Father we have sinned just like the ancient Israelites. They did nothing that we have not done. You saved them from the powerful Pharaoh and delivered from death through the Red Sea and within three days they were complaining. They were unthankful and selfish. They made an idol our of metal that looked like an ox and bowed down to it, giving this god of gold praise that belonged to You. They refused to follow Moses into the promise land and then when they did go in, the did the opposite of what you instructed: they mixed with the pagans and began to worship their gods of wood, stone and metal. They made sacrifices to demons and even burned their children in the fires of Molech and Chemosh. They killed their innocent sons and daughters.
 
womb and motherFather we were given the greatest nation in history. We were founded on the principles of Your word. Our founding fathers had great respect for You but now we have taken the mention of Your name out of our history books. We have dismissed you from courts and classrooms. Where there was once prayer and bible reading in our schools, we now have violence and drugs and it is all our doing. We are sacrificing our children to the gods of academics, sports and success. Instead of teaching them to love You with all their heart, we teach them to love the world and the things that are in it and we do so by our own example. We have polluted the land with the blood of innocent babies but we know that Isaiah was inspired by Your Spirit when he said, “The day is coming when the earth will reveal the blood spilt on it. It will no longer cover the evidence of those who committed murder. Father we are swimming in a sea of sin and guilt with pride strapped on our backs, with each stroke, the weight of our pride carries us deeper. Day by day, we can feel ourselves sinking lower and lower into this cesspool of sin and rebellion. Father, our only hope is Jesus. We may not deserve revival but we need it, desperately. Have mercy on us O God and send REVIVAL and REFORMATION. In Jesus name we pray. Amen!
